Coming from Yeah Racing are the new Hackmotor Mobster 540-size electric brushless motors. Featuring thicker stator wires the “outlaw” motors will offer greatly improved performance and lower running temperatures compared to motors build after the rules of the major sanctioning bodies. The motors utilise premium-quality ball bearings, high-purity copper wires, high-power neodymium magnets and the aluminium endbell makes for improved heat dissipation. Available now are 4.5T and 7.5T modified as well as 10.5T, 13.5T, 17.5T and 21.5T stock variants.
Muchmore Racing are busy adding more variants of the new Fleta ZX V2 motor to their portfolio with the latest outcome being the 1S optimised 6.5T Type-R for 1/12th scale pan cars. Making use of the same teardown as the previous modified variants, the Type-R is specially tuned for 1-cell applications such as 1/12th scale modified classes thanks to a specific stator and rotor combination, resulting in smooth and controllable acceleration.
Muchmore are busy adding more variants of the all-new Fleta ZX V2 brushless motor to their portfolio. The latest outcome is the ER Fixtiming Spec motor that builds on the same teardown as the Type-ER but its fixed timing design makes it ideal for spec racing classes and as handout motor. It comes as 13.5T, 17.5T and 21.5T variant and will hit stores very soon.
The latest in the line of Muchmore’s all-new Fleta ZX V2 brushless motors is a drift specific 10.5T variant. It makes use of the same Flow-Max 2 motor can and high-power stator design as the recently introduced modified and stockvariants but it includes a special rotor whose fan not only further increases cooling but it also makes for a more realistic sound effect. The Drift motor is available in the 10.5T variant only and it will hit stores very soon.
Maclan Racing have announced the new MR8.2 1/8 brushless series of motors. The MR8.2’s new design is set to deliver balanced power and smoothness thanks to a combination of a 12-slot stator with a strong, staggered 4-pole, 8-magnet rotor that is constructed to be smooth and powerful while increasing durability. An all-new error-free sensor unit design with separate sensor magnet will minimise the signal noise the often can damage speed controllers. The series will include 1500kv, 1950kv, and 2150kv buggy style motors as well as a dedicated 2100kv truggy variant.
Italian company Reds Racing have introduced their new Gen2 1/8th electric brushless motors. Developed with the help of factory drivers such as Elliott Boots the power plants feature a new stator for increased heat dissipation, a redesigned rotor makes for improved throttle control and an all-new heatsink can increases heat dissipation. The features list is rounded out by dual sensor ports, pre-shaped heavy duty solder tabs and high-RPM ball bearings. The motor will become available in a range of winding options including 1900kv and 2100kv variants.
Coming from Muchmore is a full range of rotors for the new Fleta ZX V2 modified and stockracing motors. Available are a total of 15 rotors, including a dedicated drift variant with cooling fan and 1S 1/12th scale options, that will help to fine-tune the motor’s characteristics to the given track conditions or driving style. To ensure easy identification the titanium rotors come a yellow-anodised ring and all feature laser-engraved markings on the rotor body and pinion shaft.
Team Orion have introduced their new Vortex Ultimate Modified brushless motor. Like the Ultimate Stock variant, the modified motor, that won the 4WD Buggy class at last weekend’s Hot Rod Hobbies Shootout in the hands of Xray’s Ty Tessmann, will offer increased performance and efficiency thanks to a low resistance design, a new “Ultimate” sensor construction for accurate timing adjustment and control and precision-balanced rotor manufactured using a new magnetic material. The latter will also improve brake efficiency and feeling while a new stator design and material makes for optimised efficiency and cooler running temperatures. The motor is rounded out by a 4-piece can design and a new angled front plate. The Vortex Ultimate Modified motor is race legal for all major governing bodies and it is available in 4.5T to 8.5T variants with a 6.5T 1/12th scale specific version becoming available also.
